Compliance is


our guiding principle


Protecting our core values and assets

As a large, internationally operating corporation, compliance is of the utmost importance and at the heart of what we do. It is not forced upon us, but something we welcome with open arms. Our goal is to ensure complete transparency across the board – for our people, customers, vendors, and partners. In fact, we would have never become a global leader in the highly complex world of plating chemicals if we were not compliant with local, national, and international rules and regulations. And we expect the same from all of our partners.
